This service Doesn't permit you neither suspend nor hibernate your system? Simply go to "TOSHIBA Console"/"TOSHIBA Mobile Extension Service" and uncheck all

Best practices for resolving Tmesbs32 issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with Tmesbs32. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem.
